this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we have been through aurora, the sikh temple, the oregon shopping mall, think about this, this is before we got to sandy hook. in newtown. we'd had a time of ab
of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right direction. >> that's right. he's putting something in the agenda that wasn't. we already had the pipeline to capitol hill so clogged. these three new fiscal cliffs coming up, gun control, energy infrastructure. he's putting this at the head of the line. immigration actually and even gun control got very little attention here. he mentioned newtown but only in passing. >> so do you think he held some stuff back for the state of the union? >> definitely. the state of the union will be more a blue print, a road map, but here he's talking for history. over the years this president has rightly been criticized for not telling his own narrative, for not putting out a frame, for not connecting his own dots, telling his own story. here was the president doing it. he's writing the history book for himself. this is what he wants the history books to say about barack obama. >> mike allen, president it, as always. see you soon o

is hunting down innocent people, which could be them. you think of virginia tech, sandy hook and they are in close proximity. so they are likely to be hunted down in a classroom or bathroom and killed. so they are not aware at that time that this may be a personal altercation and it's going to be resolved. they have to think they may be close to death. >> sad story. all right. we're standing by for the news conference with the sheriff. we'll give the latest. tom fuentes, thank you. >>> other news we're following in washington, the ceremonies and festivities are over. president obama is getting ready to work on his second term agenda. many republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as
sandy, the superstorm, wait it hit new york new jersey that put it back on the map. it wasn't talked about by either candidate in the last round. i was totally thrilled, not just that, he spoke to every stripe in his rainbow coalition, historic statement with regard to lesbians, gays, the entire, new emerging majority. all of that i think is in jeopardy if we don't do anything about climate change. he can do a lot of things with executive orders, the existing coal plants could be made more clean with executive authority. also he should do a bilateral with the leadership of china. china's having a horrible environmental crisis, air quality's going down. an opportunity for both superpowers to sit down. the president's unleashed, unchained, willing to speak from his heart. you'll see a very different second term. >> anna, you're always unleashed and unchained, anna. you are never a wallflower about any of these things. talk about the tone here because fellow republicans not happy about it. they didn't think it was genuine reaching across the group. they called it, quote, a harshly ideol
